HILLSBOROUGH, NC (AP) -- This week's scheduled hearing for five people charged with violating North Carolina's sports agent law by providing benefits to former Tar Heels football players has been postponed.

Orange County district attorney Jim Woodall said Monday that the hearing originally set for Wednesday is on hold until a later date that hasn't yet been set.

Prosecutors have provided tens of thousands of investigative records to defense attorneys for review. It's unclear when the case could reach a trial.

A grand jury indicted the defendants in September for violating the state's Uniform Athlete Agent Act by providing benefits to former players Marvin Austin, Greg Little and Robert Quinn in 2010. The defendants include a Georgia-based sports agent and a former UNC tutor.
